Tank was built using concrete caissons. Discussion ensued over the best way to waterproof the tank. Engineer didn’t want to apply a coating on the inside of the tank. Then, the decision was made to apply PRECON as a sandwich waterproofing.
Due to the irregular shape of the walls, plywood was attached and concrete was poured behind it for a solid base. PRECON was installed on the floor and brought up 3′ and turned up onto the plywood. The 3′ thick concrete floor will be poured and then MEL-DRAIN will be attached to the plywood and then PRECON. Afterwards, rebar and a concrete wall will be poured onto the PRECON.
